Hi, I have some quite busy logs that I would like to pre filter using log=

I had sort of thought that this might be possible using grep but it doesn=
't seem to work, not a logger problem probably a scripting issue !

tail -200f ${logdir}/${logfile} | egrep -e 'ERR-*' | logger

Although if I take off the grep it seem to work

tail -200f ${logdir}/${logfile} |  logger

Anyone any ideas? (it may be that this is the wrong way to go about it)



I was wondering if it is possible to filter=20
